I'd like to grumble because I have no choice to kind of go on maintain for a bit. Not sure how long. Because while moving furniture around and dusting, and mopping. I disturbed a very unhappy spider who got even with me. Chomped me twice and the Dr said could see double fang marks sigh!!
So now I have a drain in open wound, got antibitiotic shot, on antibiotics, taking benadryl, and steroids could be happening. And told need to kind of be a log for a bit. Some people have mild to a bit more reactions to Brown Reclude bites. Some like me go way overboard, and I one unhappy woman at this point. Grumble, Grumble.

I thought there was a thread for this grumble, but I couldn't find it. I want to grumble that my spouse is suddenly angry and jealous of my weight loss. He's not always spot on with his calories and often goes for treats, fast food, non diet soda, because he works an extremely active job. He's more or less maintained for over a month, after a series of gains, and I've told him what he needs to do if he wants to lose on numerous occasions, but he still insists he doesn't eat that much and burns it all off.
Well because of his way of eating I now weigh only 25 pounds more than him and he's really upset. He's certain that I'll blow past him and leave him behind with the weight loss. He doesn't want me to slow up, but he would like it if he could lose the weight he wants to lose. I don't know what more to do for him if he isn't willing to do for himself. I told him that I was sorry he was upset, but I need to do this for myself and that I'm willing to help him, but he has to be willing to listen. Any advice,or if someone knows the thread I'm thinking of and can link it, would be great. I don't know, maybe I need to be "the bad guy" and make sure we don't buy any treats or head out to eat.

I want to grumble about clothes sizes. They're ridiculously inconsistent.
Over the past few weeks I've been able to fit into 5-6 new XL shirts, so I finally feel comfortable saying that I truly am an XL now. It's so hard to find that line, though. I have a bunch of XL shirts that are close to fitting, some that are nowhere near close to fitting, and even some XXL stuff that is close to fitting but not quite there.
Worst of the bunch, I have an XXL dress shirt that is labeled as "regular fit" that has several inches of space between the halves of the button up shirt. Nowhere near close to fitting. It compares in size to some of my L shirts. Regular fit my *kitten*.
Pants are equally frustrating, ha.

@bmeadows380 and @merph518 I too would like to jump on this train. I am now anywhere from a 3xlt to a 5xlt shirt, and anywhere from a 46 to 50 pant depending on the brand. I am tall (6'3") so shirt length and finding an inseam size in my waste size has always frustrated me. I swear they think all fat guys with a 50 inch or bigger waste are shorter than 6 foot. I also find wearing slightly baggy clothes comforting since at my biggest almost everything especially my pants were tight.
